Utah Symphony Music Director Thierry Fischer has big plans for the 2016-17 Season. According to the Swiss conductor the Symphony will be shifting its focus back to their world class orchestra in celebration of its 75th anniversary season. For those that can't wait for next year, flutist Emmanuel Pahud will be performing Francois Borne's 19th century arrangement of Bizet's Carmen Fantasy and Marc-André Dalbavie's Flute Concerto with the orchestra this weekend.

It might seem like a no-brainer but Utah Symphony Music Director Thierry Fischer explained in a press release that he planned on shifting the organization's attention back to showcasing its orchestra:

"During our 75th anniversary season we felt it was important to highlight performing arts institutions throughout Utah with incredible on-stage collaborations.

"In 2016-17, we will put the focus back on the orchestra and say thank you to our audiences by performing some of the most frequently requested repertoire.

"This season promises to be a thrilling orchestral showcase from start to finish, and I am so proud to show off the growing excellence of the Utah Symphony. We are truly on a remarkable journey."

If the 2016-17 season seems just too far away, you can catch the orchestra in action this weekend reports Broadway World playing alongside 46-year-old Swiss flutist Emmanuel Pahud:

"Pahud returns to Salt Lake City for a colorful evening performance with the Utah Symphony under the baton of Music Director Thierry Fischer featuring Francois Borne's 19th century arrangement of Bizet's Carmen Fantasy and Marc-André Dalbavie's Flute Concerto.

"In addition to the works performed with Emmanuel Pahud, the Utah Symphony will perform Wagner's Overture to The flying Dutchman, Haydn's Symphony no.96 "Miracle", and Bartók's Suite from The Miraculous Mandarin."
